Those last two are really good units. But the Thorens requires a really
good plinth to keep things quiet (the motor is very powerful) and the first
version of the table had an iron platter that made some moving coil
cartridges be attracted to the iron and collapse the cantilever and damage
the record. If you use a moving magnet, it's not an issue. And the
td124,mk2 is aluminum instead of iron. The Dual is no slouch. I've become
quite a table/arm/cartridge collector, and my favorite 3 speed tables are
the Technics Sp-10 and Sp-15. They're a bit pricey but very good (reliable,
quiet, high performance).
